How often do you have the chance to make a difference in the lives of young people and those in your commun? Our young people need you to mentor them through the Cadet Program!

The 117 th ANG Composite Squadron can use you and the experience and talents you have to offer. They have a long history of providing youth ages 12-21 a safe, positive place to develop leadership skills and strong character, while exploring aviation and STEM careers. The squadron is in need of adults to work with cadets, assisting with planning, coordinating, training and mentorship.


Additionally, as a volunteer with the CAP you can participate in Search and Rescue missions, training exercises, and disaster relief efforts as part of the Auxiliary to the USAF. If that isn't your thing we also have opportunities in Cadet Leadership Programs, Aerospace Education, sUAS (drones), Aerial Photography, Pilot, Scanner, Observer, Logistics, Planning, Public Affairs, and Communications/Radio Operator. We have MANY opportunities to chose from.

If you’re up for the task, CAP offers ordinary citizens stimulating training opportunities few experience outside the military.

Our volunteer members train diligently to acquire the life-saving and emergency service skills necessary to assist Federal and State humanitarian agencies when disaster strikes; participate in search and rescue missions; and help keep communities safe through homeland security effort.

117th ANG Composite Squadron meets each Tuesday from 6 to 8 PM at the 117th ANG Base by the Birmingham International Airport. Access is restricted so you will need to contact us at email at cc090@alwg.us or rr@alwg.us ahead of time to gain access to the meeting place.

We invite and welcome you to be our guest for an evening at one of our weekly squadron meetings. You'll get a chance to meet some of our
members who will discuss the organization and provide you with informational pamphlets and answer any questions you might have about the Civil Air Patrol.
